Funeral Ceremony

Funeral Ceremony

A funeral ceremony is a chance to celebrate, sanctify, or remember the life of a person who has passed away. Typically the ceremony comprises of a eulogy on the deceased person, reading of verses and music.  The ceremony concludes with the words of the committal.

Planning a Funeral

Planning a funeral ceremony involves people weaving together special memories of a person to create a unique funeral ceremony. The funeral celebrant’s role is to work in consultation with and provide guidance to the family or group. Where appropriate the funeral celebrant can offer suggestions for the ceremony. This approach means the family or group get a personalised and respectful ceremony.
